Mash's 2007 Honda S2000

Long-term update: Our Honda S2000's immobiliser costs as much as 2 iPhones

Long-term update: Our Honda S2000’s immobiliser costs as much as 2 iPhones

The Honda S2000 is in a good place when it comes to collectible classics. Aside from the car’s obvious allure, it’s old enough to be rare and interesting, yet new enough to not have to panic when spare parts are needed. The local dealer still offers every conceivable part for the car, which is great for a bespoke roadster that’s been out of production since 2009. And Honda has just announced that they will continue making parts for the car as a heritage model (probably since they literally have nothing heritage-worthy in their current line-up to be proud of). So far in our experience,

We haven’t been keeping up with updates on our 2007 Honda S2000 because we didn’t drive it much over the past 12 months (apparently less than 700 km as per the RTA inspection). But it had some major work done last year anyway, so the armchair accountants among you will surely be throwing the “cost per km” number at us as if it’s a taxi cab.

Long-term update: Honda S2000 tyres from Tire.ae — we see the difference cheaper tyres make

It’s hard to believe we’ve had the Honda S2000 for five years now. It’s harder to believe how little we’ve driven it due to lack of time. However, despite what some people believe, a sitting car also requires maintenance. And the tyres on the S2000 have expired by now, as per the RTA.

Long-term update: Our Honda S2000 has the shortest short-shifter ever

Long-term update: Our Honda S2000 has the shortest short-shifter ever

It’s been possibly a year since I’ve personally driven my own Honda S2000. My brother, sub-editor Marouf, gets to enjoy it more as a runabout on occassion, keeping the mechanicals greased. It’s the cost of being busy building a business and owning three other more practical child-friendly cars and having a string of test cars that we have to drive as part of our jobs. But the other day, I finally found time to go for a round. Damn, I had forgotten how this thing drives.

Long-term update: Honda S2000 is not for everyone

Long-term update: Honda S2000 is not for everyone


The Honda S2000 is one of the greatest cars ever built, and it’s funny that we say this, because we never took it seriously when it was actually still in showrooms. Honda never seemed to have a media test car, and we figured it wouldn’t be much of a runner anyway, based on its measly horsepower and torque specs. We did shop for one back in 2008, among other options, but couldn’t afford even a used one due to sky-high resale values. Eventually, we did buy one last year of course, paying a premium for a good example, not because we were specifically looking for one,

Long-term update: Honda S2000 gets bonnet "PDR" & car-foiling "wrap"

Long-term update: Honda S2000 gets bonnet “PDR” & car-foiling “wrap”


As we’ve been harping about for a year now, the Honda S2000 is tough to maintain cosmetically. Even after we got it detailed a couple of months ago, it was going to be a major task keeping the car looking clean. The aluminium bonnet had a pebble-sized ding on it for half a year now. We don’t know where it came from, but it was time to do something about it.
